Where is it?
Lovran is a town with a long and diverse past, with a hundred-year-long tradition of tourism. It took its name from laurel, laurus nobilis, which grows abundantly in the evergreen groves in the town and environs.
Of all the places that have developed on the steep eastern slopes of Učka, Lovran is the oldest, coming into being directly on the coast of Liburnia. Lovran has preserved its historical core and medieval city plan.
A good climate, luxuriant Mediterranean vegetation and a favorable geographic location contributed to the rapid development of tourism during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Since that time, Lovran, together with Opatija, has been the most important locality on the famed Riviera. Several villas designed by the celebrated Viennese architect Carl Seidel dating from that period are part of the world architectural heritage.
One advantage of Lovran is to be found in its position, which enables you take take day-trips to some of our very beautiful national parks (Plitvice, Brijuni or Risnjak), the Istrian coast and its charming little towns, the islands of Krk, Cres and Rab, Postojna Cave in Slovenia, Venice (Italy), and many other places.
Lungomare a twelve kilometer footpath along the coastline connects the following localities in the Opatija Riviera: Lovran, Ika, Ičići, Opatija and Volosko. Undisturbed by traffic, a walk along the coastal footpath provides the opportunity to relax and savor the typical Mediterranean landscape. The building of the footpath began in 1885 and it was completed in 1889, when Opatija was declared a climatic spa.
